PSI Presents Course Materials For Post-Sixteen Educators and Students

Following an award of more than £2,000 PSI from the National Lottery, PSI has unveiled its teachers’ guide for ‘Life After Death: Survival’, an A2 level ethics and philosophy course for students in postsixteen education.
Designed specifically to tie in with the curriculum module ‘Philosophical Problems With An Afterlife’, the guide examines the evidence for and against the ‘survival hypothesis’ of life after death. This includes discussion of Spritualism, Instrumental Transcommunication, ghost photography and the reliability of eyewitness testimony in hauntings. Also included are a sample lesson plan and reading list.
As part of its Lottery grant PSI is committed to direct delivery of the course through one-off teaching sessions for schools and colleges. Presented by qualified post-sixteen educators the sessions are designed to be lively, interactive and the catalyst for debate.
A number of colleges have already made enquiries, although it is not too late to secure one of these sessions. For further details about events or a copy of the teacher’s guide please contact Dave Wood by email: [email protected].

Recruitment Drive Delivers Two New Members

Sarah BakewellPSI are pleased to formally welcome Sarah Bakewell (pictured) and Rose Haskins to the Investigation Team.
More than 115 applicants contacted Team Development Co-ordinator Nicky Sewell to express interest in vacancies arising as a result of PSI adopting a new investigation method mid-way through 2008.
To be successful the pair attended an introduction evening, were short-listed, interviewed and completed last autumn’s Training Investigation along with four others who did not make selection. Peer-assessed longitudinal fieldwork represented the final stage of the selection process, ensuring only the highest quality applicants succeeded in their quest to become team members.
No further vacancies currently exist on the Investigation Team although PSI will publicly announce details of any forthcoming recruitment process.
